Andrew Forsthoefel is the author of “Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time,” a memoir he wrote after spending 11 months walking by himself across the country. On his backpack was a sign that read, "Walking to Listen," which became the opening and the invitation for countless interactions, conversations and newfound friendships as he made his way on his journey. Andrew was looking for a graduate program in the human experience, a teacher who’d show up and show him how to do the work of being human. At 23 year’s old, he wanted to mark his entrance into adulthood and transform into the man who would carry him the rest of his life.
